Sounds in Action: Phonological Awareness Activities and Assessment.
This book provides the tools classroom teachers need to determine which children lack the phonological awareness skills needed to become successful readers as well as to pinpoint deficiencies and address various needs. The book's unique features include the following: a comprehensive assessment that measures children's phonological awareness skills; specific activities for each of the skills measured in the assessment; a progress-report sheet for documenting where children are on the phonological awareness skills sequence; and many activities designed to strengthen the connection between phonological awareness and phonics. The book's numerous activities will serve as tools with which teachers can reinforce or remediate their students' skills based on their performance on the assessment. The book also contains many reproducibles, a 36-item bibliography of books on phonological awareness and reading, a section about research findings, a 22-item glossary, and a list of 9 Web sites.
